Amsterdam In Under 60 Seconds

A Quick Tour Of Amsterdam

We’ve just come back from a city break to Amsterdam. Our video explores the views of central Amsterdam, from the city centre including the Damrak and Dam Square. A bustling area and the main thoroughfare to the Central Station.

We explored the canals of the old Red Light District (De Wallen) and out to the stylish western canal ring of Herengracht and Keizersgracht with their grand houses and elegant tree lined waterways.

Amsterdam is a beautiful canal city and only an hour from the UK but one little tip – Watch out for the bikes!

    Looks like you had a lovely time – I’m heading to Amsterdam (and potentially relocating there with work) later this year and cannot wait!

    I’ve never been in Amsterdam and it was interesting to watch the video. I found the music a bit spooky it could have been something positive and summery because then it would have matched the style of videos better. However the post was great, thanks for sharing!
